Bullock Raises Over $4 Million in Dark Money for DGA
Governor Bullock announced today that as Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), he raised $17 million during the first half of 2015, including over $4 million in undisclosed, unlimited corporate cash– the same cash Bullock publicly condemns and tells Montanans he’s fighting against.
“Governor Bullock’s appalling level of hypocrisy is on full display today after it was revealed he raised over $4 million in dark money.” said Jeff Essmann, Chairman of the MTGOP. “Bullock actively misleads Montanans telling us he is fighting dark money while in actuality he is raising and spending this very same cash for the benefit of his party and himself. Montanans deserve to have a Governor they can trust to keep his word even when it’s not convenient.”
Bullock’s dark money organization has now spent over $1 million in attack-ads against Pennsylvania Republicans to help set-up his fellow Democrat Governor for re-election.
The DGA has held fundraising events this year at the Kentucky Derby, in Dallas with Vice President Biden, Greenwich, CT, Nantucket, MA, White Sulphur Springs, WV, and this weekend in Aspen, CO. Bullock refuses to tell Montanans if he’s attending these events and how much dark money he raised. Bullock should release his travel schedule so Montanans know when he’s attending to his other job raising dark money.
After Bullock became Chairman of the DGA, he promised to change their dark money policy and “fully disclose all of its donors.” Bullock’s pledge has been nothing more than a broken promise.
